Varnish is a web app accelerator platform, which caches info for the sake of quicker access. It’s occasionally referred to as an HTTP reverse proxy as well and it interacts between a web server and its users. When a visitor opens a certain web page, its content is requested by the Internet browser, and then the server processes this request and sends back the required info. If Varnish is enabled for a given website, it will cache its pages at the first request and if the user visits a cached page again, the information will be delivered by the caching platform instead of the web server. The boosted load speed is an end result of the considerably faster response time that Varnish offers compared to any web server software. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that the site visitors will keep being served the exact same content over and over again, because any update on any of the web pages is reflected in the content that Varnish stores in its system memory.

Varnish in Cloud Hosting

Varnish is available as an optional upgrade with all our cloud plans. You can add it to your account via the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all shared web hosting plans and you will get a pretty intuitive GUI, which will grant you complete control over the content caching system. Using 1-click fast-access buttons, you can reboot or terminate any of the instances, in other words – Varnish will no longer be enabled for a particular Internet site. You can also view an in-depth system log or clear the cache for any of the Internet sites. When you add Varnish to your shared web hosting plan, you’ll be able to select the total amount of memory that will be available to you for data caching purposes and how many sites will use Varnish. You can always add more memory in increments of 32 megabytes and, for top performance, you can assign a dedicated IP address to the sites that will use Varnish. This will enable you to take full advantage of your sites and to have many gratified users.

Varnish in Semi-dedicated Servers

Varnish is included by default with all semi-dedicated hosting plans that we’re offering and you can use it for load distribution purposes. It is available in your Hepsia Control Panel. The platform comes with 64 MB of system memory for cached data storing purposes and you can employ it with any site that you host in the account. If you are in need of more, you can increase the system memory allocation. The memory itself is available in increments of 32 MB in the Upgrades section of the Control Panel. The exact same Upgrades section will permit you to enable more instances too, in case you’d like to use the Varnish platform with multiple sites. The two upgrades can be ordered independently – you can cache the content of one single regularly visited Internet site or run a number of Internet sites with the default memory quota. You can take full advantage of Varnish if you use a dedicated IP and you can order one with your semi-dedicated plan as well. Hepsia will grant you full control over the platform and, with no more than one single click, you will be able to clear the cached data, to check a system log or to reboot an instance.

Varnish in VPS Servers

You can take advantage of Varnish with any of our VPS server packages at no extra fee, since the content caching platform is pre-installed and is offered by default. The only prerequisite is that the Virtual Private Server must come with the Hepsia Control Panel, through which you’ll be able to set up Varnish for any of your Internet sites with only a couple of clicks of the mouse. Each package includes a different amount of system memory for content caching purposes, but you will get no less than several hundred megabytes, which is sufficient even for several large sites. Soon after you enable the Varnish platform, it will begin caching the content that your visitors open, so you will notice the significantly faster Internet site load speeds and the lowered server load very soon. The platform will allow you to use a less high-priced virtual server, as you won’t require that many resources to warrant the proper operation of your websites even if you’ve got traffic-hungry Internet sites with many visitors. Optimum results are accomplished if the Internet sites which use the Varnish caching platform use also a dedicated IP.

Varnish in Dedicated Servers

You can use Varnish to enhance the loading speed of any site that’s hosted on a dedicated server from us if the Hepsia hosting Control Panel is pre-installed on it. Not only will you get the content caching platform ready for use at no additional cost, but you’ll also have full control over it through the Hepsia Control Panel’s easy-to-work-with GUI. It’ll take just one mouse click to start or remove an instance or to clear the cached files for any site that is using the Varnish platform and if you’re more trained, you can also view the platform’s logs. Varnish comes with at least 3 GB of memory for caching purposes, so even if you run a huge number of Internet sites on your machine and they all use the Varnish platform, the improvement in their performance will be apparent. You will only need to wait for a while till Varnish caches whatever content the site visitors load on their end. The Varnish platform performs best if the Internet sites use a dedicated IP address, but since our servers include 3 free-of-charge IP addresses, you’ll have all that you need.
